    But whatever. I guess for some it's easy to straddle two viewpoints simultaneously. Either she's wrong having said it or she was wrong rather hysterically trying to bite it back. How can she be right on both counts is beyond me.

    But again, please please please let's talk about her college yearbook where she quotes a famous socialist.
    I have already indicated that because the Second Circuit is not the court of last resort, she can't say that it makes policy since that policy (or ruling) can be appealed to the Supreme Court.

    Well when she had to pick a quote for her yearbook she went with the guy who ran multiple times on the socialist ticket. If that doesn't clue folks in, nothing well.

    Ah yes, how quickly the Left wishes us all to forget their vicious PERSONAL attacks on Robert Bork (coining the term being "borked"), Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and even the public smear campaign on Harriet Myers.

    You know, the blatant and asinine hypocrisy from Liberals is truly profound. You just cannot fabricate the level of stupidity it takes to be a member of the Democrat led Congress or Liberal media to have and extreme case of Alzheimer’s whenever their preferences are questioned for the lack of jurisprudence.

    Re: Obama to pick Sotomayer for Supreme Court

    Some of her decisions overuled by the Supreme Court:

    SECURITIES FRAUD RULING OVERTURNED BY SUPREME COURT

    *Sotomayor wrote the majority decision in 2005 in a securities fraud case involving Merrill Lynch that later was overturned by the Supreme Court in a victory for corporate defendants.

    The purported securities fraud class-action case had been brought by a former Merrill Lynch broker who accused the investment firm of fraudulently manipulating stock prices.

    Sotomayor reinstated the case, after it had been dismissed by a lower court, ruling that it was not barred by a federal law which makes it harder to bring such lawsuits.

    The Supreme Court in 2006 unanimously disagreed with her ruling and held such suits were prohibited by federal law.

    ENVIRONMENTAL LAW INVOLVING POWER PLANTS

    * Sotomayor wrote a major environmental law ruling that the Bush administration Environmental Protection Agency could not weigh the costs of introducing technology used in power plant cooling structures against the benefits of protecting aquatic life.

    Her ruling was reversed by the Supreme Court on April 1 by a 6-3 vote in a defeat for environmentalists and a victory for the EPA and energy companies that operate power plants.

    WINE SHIPMENTS

    * Sotomayor was part of a three-judge panel that upheld New York's law barring direct shipments of out-of-state wine to in-state consumers.

    The Supreme Court in 2005 struck down such laws, arguing they unconstitutionally limited interstate commerce.

    COPYRIGHT CASE

    * Freelance journalists had sued the New York Times Company for copyright infringement because the Times included in an electronic database the work of the authors it had published.

    Sotomayor as a trial judge ruled that the publisher had the right to license the work of the freelancers, in a decision that limited the copyright rights of the authors.

    Her decision was reversed on appeal, and the Supreme Court in 2001 upheld the reversal.

    That doesn't sound particularly civil aps. And don't give me that crapola. I refuse to believe I don't turn you on. Just because one of us is wrongheaded doesn't mean we stop being flirtatious.

    Could you tell me what effect that quote, made decades ago, had on any of her decisions? I don't see it. And also tell me how a statement made decades ago has any bearing on her present political compass. A case in point - Some Neocons were once members of the Communist party. Were they still Communists after they became Neocons and joined the Republican party?

    What a garbage reply.


    Unlike you I don't have a third party telling me who I am to like or dislike.
    Haven't listened to Rush since 1994!... you twit.

    I'm just not surprised that Obama was able to find a woman who quoted a famous member of the socialist party in her college yearbook. I'd personally feel better if she quoted Metallica.
